You turned the fuel petcock back on after replacing that line, right?

You bet. As I noted, plenty of fuel in the float bowls.

Choke off, give it a quick shot of starting fluid, then hit the button.

Hay Ron I would have to go with what MichaelFZ1 says ... Firing order , sounds like your 180 off on the Ignition timing , you may have put the wires on right but you could be off 180 , so you can try switching the wires from the coils , simply switch both leads from one coil to the other , you should have plenty of fuel in the carbs to start with the tank off the bike

The coil wires have the cylinder numbers marked on them if I remember correctly.

No sweat on the replies guys - appreciated!

I'll be digging into this over the weekend. Plug wires are marked and plugged in correctly. I'm going to go back and check the timing to see if I'm 180 out. I'd be flabbergasted if I were but I'm going to check just the same. Will double check cam lobe alignment at TDC as well and in conjunction with the timing marks to make sure everything lines up like it is supposed to. I may even recheck the valve timing even though I'd be equally surprised to find that is off.

More this wkd.

Ron

Before pulling the bike back apart, swap the power wires to the coil. Im almost willing to bet that’s where the problem lies. This would effectivly act like 180 out timing.

I plan to do that early but I may go ahead and take the side cover off and loosen the valve cover. This is very little disassembly. It also saves my gaskets in the short term. I do plan however to swap the coil wires and give it a go early in the process.

Coils are lost spark, so I think that means they fire every 180 degs regardless.

I could be wrong, of course.

What Lost spark means is , each coil when it fires sends a spark to both spark plugs that it is attached to , example when the coil for cylinders 1 and 4 fire and number 1 is on the compression stroke you get ignition to the fuel , cylinder number 4 has no fuel to burn so you have Lost spark . as a foot note you have to switch both leads on the coils to change the firing order because one lead is a power lead and the other is the trigger from the igniter box.

Every time I see this thread I think it's a gossip forum about moderators.

Every. Time.
